Hip Hop Hijabis: “Muslim chick with an itch to spit skits”

Voices

Bristolian Muslim rappers Sukina Douglas and Tanya Muneera Williams are “proud to be from a place of resistance.”

They talk to us about smashing stereotypes, converting to Islam, and growing up with pirate radio & political resistance in St Werburghs and Easton. They’re Poetic Pilgrimage, the “Hip Hop Hijabis”.
